Brad Steiger

Legendary paranormal author and investigator Brad Steiger has passed away at the age of 82. An incredibly prodigious author, Steiger penned more than 170 books on not only the strange and unusual, but also biographies of Hollywood icons and true crime cases. In total, a jaw-dropping 17 million copies of his various works were sold throughout his incredible writing career.

First appearing in print with articles on the unexplained in 1956, Steiger’s first book, ‘Ghosts, Ghouls and Other Peculiar People,’ was published in 1965. He continued writing books all the way up until this year with the forthcoming ‘Haunted: Malevolent Ghosts, Night Terrors, and Threatening Phantoms’ due to be released in October. In the early 1970’s, he also penned a weekly newspaper column, ‘The Strange World of Brad Steiger’ that was carried in 80 American newspapers as well as in publications from Toyko to Bombay.

A bonafide icon in the world of the paranormal, Steiger inspired countless readers to become investigators and writers of their own with many of today’s prominent researchers crediting him with sparking their interest in the subject. To that end and to his enormous credit, Steiger wrote fluently and thoughtfully about a vast array of paranormal topics including UFOs, ghosts, cryptids, supernatural experiences, conspiracies, and nearly every other genre that can be found within the milieu of the odd.

He is survived by his beloved wife Sherry, five children, ten grandchildren, and multiple generations of paranormal enthusiasts to whom his influence cannot be understated.

Mysterious crying girl in Turkish cemetery stirs panic among locals


An eerie mystery has gripped a city in Turkey as an unidentified girl has been spotted crying in an old cemetery for many days.
On April 29, witnesses reported a teenage girl crying and speaking to herself on one of the graves. The next day, workers at the cemetery found the girl but she then disappeared, after which they left a note on the grave saying they could help her. They also informed police about the ghostly image.

The girl reportedly continued to come to the grave to cry for the next two days, each time managing to escape from officials and disappear into the shadows of the cemetery.

Police said the girl was dressed in black and wore red shoes, and was crying on the grave of a woman who died in 1982. The girl reportedly looked around 15 years old and police works are continuing in order to get to the bottom of the incident.
